I had heard of Vincent Price's impact on the horror genre countless times, and yet I had never watched one of the movies he stars in (except Edward Scissorhands).
I am so happy that I finally took the time to watch this film, because it blew me away.
The dramatic score, combined with the gorgeous and stylized cinematography creates a spooky atmosphere, and the locations are perfectly chosen. As for the acting, Vincent Price steals the show. His charisma makes him shine, and he fits perfectly in the creepy yet charming character of this crazy millionaire who has a twisted definition of what "fun" is.
House on Haunted Hill isn't a perfect movie, but its fast pacing, its intriguing and mysterious storyline, its dated but effective special effects (that have succeeded to creep me out more than once) and Price's character makes it a great horror film that I will certainly rewatch in the near future !
